Invariant quasimorphisms and coarse geometry of scl (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The topic of this talk is completely independent from that of the intensive lecture (the Green--Tao theorem) from 9th to 13th, Oct. This talk is based on the series of the joint work with Morimichi Kawasaki, Mitsuaki Kimura, Takahiro Matsushita and Shuhei Maruyama. Quasimorphisms on a group are interesting objects, but for many naturally constructed groups the space of quasimorphisms tends to be either 'trivial' or infinite dimensional. We study the setting of a pair of a group and its normal subgroup, not of a single group, and invariant quasimorphisms. Then, we can obtain a non-zero finite dimensional vector space from this setting. The celebrated Bavard duality theorem is extended to this framework, and the resulting theorem yields some outcome on the coarse geometry of scl (stable commutator length). I will present an overview of the developments of this theory.
